To decrease the seek time of hard disk drives, a feedforward control method was developed by using a sampled-data polynomial. The sampled-data polynomial satisfies the boundary conditions that include the characteristics of the zero-order hold, and compensates for the discretization error caused by the zero-order hold without the need for complicated calculations. Therefore, the feedforward control using the sampled-data polynomial enables real-time calculation and does not require lookup tables which need a large amount of memory. The parameters of the sampled-data polynomial are designed by using shock-response-spectrum analysis to minimize the settling vibrations caused by the feedforward control inputs. When the proposed method was applied on a hard disk drive, it significantly reduced the amount of tracking error in the seek control and also reduced the seek time.
